Anne Huskey Lockard
A beautiful friend has lost her battle with cancer. She leaves behind her husband Gary and many loving friends and family. I met Anne online about 12 years ago and our friendship blossomed through emails and phone calls. We never got a chance to meet in real life but that doesn't make it any easier to deal with having her gone.
Gary, Anne and Dr. Salter
She fought long and hard against her disease and we all hoped she might be in the small percentage of survivors. Unfortunately that wasn't the case.
I'd like to celebrate her life with this post.
Anne was many things, artist, poet, photographer, blogger, music lover, chef, gardener, nature lover, and she enjoyed a good glass of wine. She loved to dress up in beautiful clothing and great shoes, her make up perfect.

She loved many genres of music but especially loved The Ramones and the Misfits and even created art in their honor. Classic jazz was another favorite of hers.
She was well known to have an unquenchable desire for shoes and Doc Marten boots. I wonder how many pair she owns?
Yes, Anne was a big fan of Halloween and Day of the Dead celebrations. You could count on her and husband Gary to always dress up for the trick or treaters.
Photography was another passion. Flowers and nature were especially favorite subjects. I invite you all to go to Anne's blog, El Milagro Studio and review some of her posts. She could always be counted on to share inspiration there.
Anne surely is saying this from the place she is now. She is mourned and missed by many but will live on in our hearts.
This is one of my favorite photos of Anne. In red, doing something she most loved, making art.
I miss our daily emails, our phone conversations. I miss you, dear Anne. I will hold my memories of you close and keep you forever in my heart, sister/friend.
